SuperMemo 15 uses Unicode throughout the program. All old collections will now need to be converted to Unicode. As this requires some knowledge of System Locale, this page provides the ABC rules for the upgrade.

When you open an old collection, SuperMemo will automatically beging the upgrade. You will first be asked:

SuperMemo 15 Beta needs to convert old collections to Unicode. Please choose:

* I use English. Go ahead with the default conversion
* I know what code page or system locale I use in this collection
* Please help me
* Cancel

If you never use foreign languages, and your Windows uses English locale (e.g. US, UK, etc.), you can choose the first option Go ahead. However, if you ever created your collections using foreign non-Latin symbols (e.g. Russian, Hebrew, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, etc.), you will need to tell SuperMemo which page you want to use for the conversion. If you choose I know what code page ...", SuperMemo will help you pick teh code page:


Choose a code page for conversion to Unicode:

English (old SuperMemos)
1250 — Central and East European Latin
1251 — Cyrillic
1252 — West European Latin
1253 — Greek
1254 — Turkish
1255 — Hebrew
1256 — Arabic
